Eye-catcher: The underwater ship of the clipper is surrounded by a glass hall
Sydney – London in 73 days, speeds regularly over 17 knots, and fully loaded: the "Cutty Sark" is legendary. She did not set her records in the tea trade on the route between London and China, but with Australian wool. After steam shipping also took over the transport of wool, the proud Clipper continued to change: a mast broke off South Africa, conversion to less sail area, service as a training ship, and finally it fell into disrepair.
Today the restored ship is in a museum in the London borough of Greenwich, which is largely preserved in its original form.
